Simon Cowell had a change of heart after getting Botox and fillers. The former American Idol judge revealed that he stopped getting any cosmetic procedures. He admitted that he went overboard with fillers in the past. His 8-year-old son Eric was in “hysterics” when he saw his face.
The X Factor star has changed a lot over the years. Simon used to be a bachelor who was a bit vain. As TV Shows Ace previously reported, the Brit said he wanted to settle down and get married. Now, he’s changing his stance on fillers, comparing them to something out of a “horror film.”
Simon Cowell stopped getting injectables
In a new interview with The Sun, Simon Cowell talked about his love of face fillers. That ended when he noticed the aftereffects. Simon has been laying off the fillers ever since he’s been settling down with his fiance Lauren Silverman. He admitted they looked “like something out of a horror film.”
“There was a stage where I might have gone a bit too far,” Simon Cowell told The Sun on Saturday, April 9. “I saw a picture of me from ‘before’ the other day, and didn’t recognize it as me first of all.”
The 62-year-old shares an 8-year-old son Eric with Lauren. He admitted that his boy was in “hysterics” over his face. Eric couldn’t help but notice the change in his father’s face, which caused the reality star to have a change of heart. Simon hasn’t had fillers ever since.
“Enough was enough,” Simon Cowell said. “There is no filler in my face at all now. Zero.”
His career got a major boost due to shows like American Idol and America’s Got Talent. Simon spent a lot of his time in Hollywood and the music industry, which is known for its love of cosmetic procedures. It has rubbed off on Simon as well. The longtime stag wanted to keep up with his looks, but now he promotes a healthier lifestyle.
“There was a phase where everyone was having their faces pumped full of this and the other,” Simon Cowell continued. “But actually, for me now, a lot of it comes down to healthy eating and drinking tons of water.”
Former AI judge embraces aging gracefully
Simon Cowell is aware that his looks have changed over the years. You can see the before and after photos here in the E! Online article. Simon is embracing again gracefully these days. But that doesn’t mean he always enjoys getting older.
“The only good thing of getting older is you have a lot of experience and it’s not always about the things you did well — it’s about the things you didn’t,” he added.
Simon Cowell also revealed that he was a “sucker for reading about something out there and believing it will work.” He would do crazy things for the women in his life. In 2015, he told Mirror Online that he got detox treatments for a girl he just met. Simon also had a “sheep placenta facial,” which he admits was “quite out there.”
